Children wear school uniform which consists of our red Brize Norton sweatshirt. It is worn with a white polo shirt (logo optional) and navy blue trousers or skirt. In the summer months (Easter to October half term) girls may wear white and blue checked dresses and boys smart navy shorts. It is essential that all clothing is named.
Children are required to wear smart black or navy school shoes and are advised to bring an old pair of trainers for playtimes.
Each child should have a pair of navy shorts and a plain white T-shirt for PE and in addition in winter, they should have tracksuit bottoms/leggings and navy sweat-shirt. On PE days your children should come to school wearing their PE kit.
School sweatshirts can be purchased from the school and other uniform items from our online shop at www.pmgschoolwear.co.uk.
For reasons of safety, children should not wear jewellery in school. If they have their ears pierced, they should wear studs. No responsibility can be accepted for these by staff and they should not be worn on swimming days or PE days. Children are not permitted to wear make-up or nail varnish in school. Watches, however, are allowed. All long hair should be tied back.
For six weeks a year, all KS2 children take part in swimming at the Carterton leisure centre swimming pool, for which they need swimwear, a towel and a swimming hat.
In addition, one afternoon a week throughout the year Reception children take part in Forest school in our own wildlife area which is led by our forest school leader, Mrs Rae. For half a term a year, other year groups also get the opportunity to attend as part of our commitment to outdoor learning provision. This takes place outdoors whatever the weather, and children need suitable outdoor clothing to change into as well as rain gear.
